"Hi, I’m Eman from North Andover, MA and wanted to share my experience working with Lisa Swanson, owner of Body & Soul Coaching.
Before I started with Lisa I struggled with consistently working out. When I did workout, I wasn’t sure where to start or what to do. I had been dieting with no result; I would lose & gain the some 10 lbs. over and over again.
After reading about Lisa’s programs I scheduled a consult with her and learned a lot more about what she has to offer & how she could help me. I realized that this is just what I needed.
I knew this program sounded great but I was afraid that getting a personal trainer was going to be a difficult. I’ve heard stories about how personal trainers can be pretty tough and that’s a little scary when you’re just starting out.
Once I got into the program I was surprised at how easy it was to follow. Lisa was so understanding and knew just how hard to push and when to lighten up. She coached my mind before my body. She helped me understand how to change old bad habits and how to add new healthy habits.
Working with a coach, trainer and nutritionist is so much different than working with just a trainer, or just a coach. Having it all under one roof really makes a difference.
I couldn’t believe I was actually able to lose weight after trying for so long on my own. I finally knew exactly what I was supposed to be working on and the weight started coming off. Another bonus was how much stronger and flexible I felt. I’ve also got a lot more energy than I had before starting the program.
Now that I’ve been a client for 3 months, I have lost 11 pounds, 17 inches and 5% body fat!! I have more energy, better balance, flexibility, and more confidence.
So to anyone who is looking to lose weight, get healthier and develop better eating and workout habits, I encourage you to get started. Don’t wait any longer to get the results you’ve been hoping for."

"Working with Lisa to reach my fitness goals has been an incredible journey for me so far. I started with the goal of entering a bikini competition, being about 30 or more pounds overweight, and with a lifestyle that had me out drinking a few nights per week and eating very unhealthily. I was ready to make a change, and with Lisa's help and guidance I was educated on how to make it. We focused greatly on "progress, not perfection" because she does not just help you lose weight, but rather helps you to decide to change your habits and learn how to live a healthy lifestyle. Not only am I happy with how I look physically now, but also I have found that I'm a much happier person in general and I feel extremely healthy! I just hiked a 4700 ft mountain! I couldn't have done that 6 months ago. Not to mention, she continues to help reach my new fitness goals and stay on track. My lifestyle, physical health, and emotional health has improved immensely since starting on this path! Down 35 pounds and 15% body fat."

“I didn’t become 30 lbs overweight and unfit overnight and it won’t get “fixed” overnight. I had the wonderful experience of meeting with Lisa on FaceTime this morning. Wonderful because she listened, I mean really listened! She helped me make a plan, got me inspired, excited and determined I CAN DO THIS.
The workouts she gives us are fun, challenging without being scary and explained very well – I have no problem following the exercises. Her workouts keep me from getting bored, which helps excite me and makes me eager for my workout the next day. The meal plan is also easy to follow. I’m in this for my lifetime; I’m not looking for a quick fix but to really make these healthy changes for the rest of my life.
I can’t emphasize enough how great I think this program is, it’s affordable and realistic and Lisa is inspiring and sincere in her desire to help me on this journey into my healthy, fit future.”

"Lisa is an extremely engaging trainer. She is genuinely interested in your success, unlike other trainers who I have trained with. Most trainers or groups do not customize programs to your needs; they are very canned programs. With Lisa, you get customized workouts, customized nutrition (most do not give nutrition advice), and a true supporter. She wants you to succeed. Be ready to be held accountable; you will need to do the work, too."

"Wow, thanks, Lisa! I just viewed my measurement numbers and am SO pleased.
I'm down 10 lbs 12.5 inches and 4% body fat.
All I know is that NONE of this change would have been possible without you and your support and knowledge.
I came to you during a very tough period in my life, with lots of loss, changes, and a midlife woman’s body that refused to yield any weight loss despite my reasonably healthy eating habits.
What I didn’t know — and have learned from you — is the significance of macros, the importance of lean protein, how carbs negatively affect my body, and how to build muscle through resistance and weight training.
I feel better and I have more energy (and daresay I look better!!).
Thank you, Lisa. To everyone else out there, sign up with Lisa one-on-one if you can, and if you can’t, sign up for the 12 week Body Transformation program."

"I love Body & Soul Coaching! I work with Lisa, and she is awesome. I've been working with her for about 3 years now. I am seeing more definition in my arms, and my legs are definitely becoming leaner and tighter. I am much more aware of my nutrition and how many calories I am consuming as well as what type of foods I should be eating in terms of good carbs and healthy fats. She works with you to find out what is the best schedule and exercises for you so you are set up for success! She also creates nutrition guidelines for you, which is so helpful because nutrition seems like it is always the hardest part of fitness plans! She is always easily accessible and will get back to you quickly. Finally this is now a lifestyle and not a diet. Will definitely keep working with her!"
“Not sure how, but I came across Lisa’s page and something told me to check it out. Well I did just that. I was a little reluctant at first, being it was something I came across on the Internet. Again, something told me to “Just Do It.”
I’m so glad I listened to my inner self. To date, I’m down 7 lbs. and it’s only the first week. (Keep in mind, muscle weighs more than fat!)
I struggle to stay motivated but with Lisa’s personal touch, advice, and daily post I have managed to stay focused. It’s not easy and yes to be honest for me it’s hard. I would like to take this time to say thank you Lisa, you have inspired me, motivated me and helped me realize I can do this.
I remind myself of something I heard Lisa say in one of her videos: “To not workout is not an option!” Love it!
With that said, if you’re thinking about doing one of Lisa’s programs, do yourself a favor. Just Do It! It’s a great way to kick start your journey to health and fitness. I’m 55 years old and with the help of Lisa’s programs and advice, I know I can reach my goals.”
